Dr. Yamini Narayanan is a Senior Lecturer at Deakin University in Victoria, Australia. Offering a more-than-human sociological analysis of cow protectionism in India, Narayanan argues that the discourse renders bovines vulnerable because it reinforces two compatible and comparable oppressions: ‘casteism’ and ‘speciesism’.
